Real Real People1 Oct. 1999
- Published on Amazon.com
Mike Leigh only now is becoming somewhat of a star to indy fans for his ability to depict people as they really are. His recent films, though, are a bit more Hollywoodized than his overlooked earlier ones. The characters in Home Sweet Home are so believable it's hard to believe that they're acting. None of them are the sharpest knife in the drawer, nor are they better than plain looking. In other words, they are real "real people." Which doesn't prevent them having interesting lives filled with the same sadness and joy we all feel, without the shameless slathering on and tear-jerking Hollywood can't seem to avoid. If you're looking for slice of life movies, you can't do better than this and other early Mike Leigh movies like "Nuts in May," "Four Days in July," "Hard Labor," "Grownups," and "Who's Who."
